My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

I am thinking...
about my father-in-law. He was a scout for Patton and participated in the campaign in Africa and Italy before being in the second wave in Normandy. His group suffered heavy casualties when a bomb burst overhead. When they went around collecting the dog tabs after the battle, someone went to grab his and noticed that he was still a live. He was saved and was able to recover enough to get married and have 9 children - one of which was my husband, Mr. Pete.

I am thankful...
for the observant eye of the man pulling the dog tags!

I am pondering...

Before the holiday, two of Mr. Pete's cousins cleaned up the grave sites of all five brothers and made sure to plant some flowers!  They do this every year and I think that is such a beautiful tradition.

In the kitchen...

Mr. Pete cooked ribs all day on the grill for Memorial Day.  I've got to figure out the rest of the week. I'm thinking quiche for Tuesday night.

    A quote to share...

    “Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.”
